Snow Days, Sew Days

 *Don't forget to link up to the last two parties for Sewing With Certainty (they end Sunday!): Writing a Sewing Blog and Goal Updates! Prizes announced Sunday night or Monday!*

The last two days have been pretty blissful, besides digging two cars out of 3-4 feet of packed, plowed snow. Ugh. We've had 4 snow days in the last two weeks, plus 3 delayed openings. Crazy!

Positives - I got a LOT of sewing done whilst being a hermit in my apartment! I finished two bee blocks for our guild bee (one on time! Yeah!).

For Rachel. I am crushing on these colors but the little buggers (HSTs) took f.o.r.e.v.e.r. even with chain-piecing! But it's a-okay. :)

For Robin. It's fun to work with fabrics out of my norm. So much color - love! Robin's instructions were open-ended, which left room for experimentation.


I put up a little design wall (behind the light) with some extra batting! It works perfectly (just used a few push pins).

I finished the backing and the quilting of my Pantone challenge quilt! More on that soon! Here's a sneak peek from Instagram; I was pleased to find that border pebbling is not all that difficult. They are going to look like half circles when I bind the thing!

I started chain piecing a mini quilt!

I basted a quilt. PHEW (no pics yet). That was a workout after shoveling all afternoon. I swear I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight.

What have you been up to? Hopefully something quilty! 


  1. I thought the little HST's would be fiddly but the block looks great.

  2. You got so much snow! Ours is already melted. That block for Rachel is calling my name! Rachel is a very lucky girl to get it:)

  3. I am so jealous that you had such a productive week! Despite the snow (and not even having to shovel it - hurray condo association!), we all had terrible colds and then a quick trip between storms, so today is my first day of sewing in days. I am excited to see your Pantone quilt!

  4. I'm so jealous of all of your snow and quilting time!! Your blocks look great!

  5. You have been sew busy! Your blocks are sweet! Glad to see you set up a design wall. You will love it. Looking forward to the big Pantone reveal. Sleep well!

  6. So, something good came out of all that bad weather! Wa-hoo!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
